Protesters hold back military takeover of Balkans’ largest mountain pasture | Mongabay Nyheter

Mileva “Gara” Jovanović’s family has been taking cattle up to graze in Montenegro’s Sinjajevina Highlands for more than 140 summers. The mountain pastures of the Sinjajevina-Durmitor Massif are the largest on Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, and they’ve provided her family not only with milk, cheese, and meat, but with an enduring livelihood and the means to send five of her six children to university. “It gives us life,” said Gara, an elected spokesperson for the eight self-described tribes who share the summer pasture. But, Gara says, this alpine pasture — “the Mountain,” she calls it — is under serious threat, and with it the tribes’ way of life. Two years ago, Montenegro’s military moved ahead with plans to develop a training ground where soldiers would carry out maneuvers and artillery practice in these grasslands. No stranger to the daunting challenges of life as an alpine herder, Gara said that when she first heard of the military’s plans, it brought her to tears. “It’s going to destroy the Mountain because it’s impossible to have both the military polygon there and cattle,” she told Mongabay.

Anthropologists who have studied the region say that pastoralists have been bringing their herds to the Sinjajevina grasslands for around 3,000 years. Now, Gara fears that the military’s use of the land will utterly disrupt the current natural balance that 250 local…This article was originally published on Mongabay Läs mer

Indigenous Cacataibo of Peru threatened by land grabbing and drug trade | Mongabay Nyheter

Mario’s nervousness is evident on the other end of the phone as he speaks about how three men tried to stab him in November 2020. This wasn’t the first time something like this happened; Mario says he has faced harassment and threats for more than a year for denouncing deforestation in his village, the Indigenous community of Santa Martha in central Peru. Another situation allegedly occurred in 2019 when he unintentionally approached an airstrip used to transport coca while walking through a field near town. Mario recalls how a group of strangers cornered him and issued a stark warning. “We’re going to kill your whole family,” Mario claims they said. Mario says that every so often he receives anonymous calls, the voices on the other end warning him that he is being watched and he should not report the illegal fields of coca that are becoming more and more common. However, Mario says this hasn’t deterred him from making reports to the Native Federation of Cacataibo Communities (Fenacoca) .  He believes this is why, in November, three men surrounded him and tried to stab him. He says they likely intended his death to look like the result of a street brawl and that he’d likely be dead if his relatives weren’t close at hand to chase off his attackers. Coca plantations spread out from the edges of the native community of Santa Martha. The situation has worsened during the pandemic. Photo courtesy of members of the community of Santa Martha. Mario lives in…This article was originally published on Mongabay Läs mer

Brazil elections boost environmental violators to high office in Amazon | Mongabay Nyheter

More than a hundred candidates who ran in municipal elections last November in cities across Brazil’s Amazonian states are on the environmental regulator’s “dirty list” for violations committed over the past decade. That’s the finding from an analysis by Agência Pública, a nonprofit investigative journalism agency in Brazil. It found 118 of the candidates for mayor and deputy mayor in the Nov. 15 polls had previously been fined for deforestation, illegal burning, exploitation of native forest located in reserves, or providing false information to environmental agencies to cover up illegal activities. The politicians include 51 who were in office at the time of the election, and 28 who ran for reelection. Among those fined by IBAMA, the federal environmental protection agency, were four mayors and two deputy mayors of the six municipalities in the state of Pará notorious for the Aug. 10, 2019, “day of fire” — a series of blazes set by the agribusiness sector to clear land. The politicians are Valmir Climaco, the mayor of Itaituba, who was reelected; Raimundo Batista Santiago of Jacareacanga; Valdinei José Ferreira and his deputy, Maurício de Lima Santos, from Trairão, both of them reelected; and Ubiraci Soares Silva and his deputy, Gelson Luiz Dill, of Novo Progresso. (Dill ran against Silva in the election and won.) Together, the six men have racked up fines of 7.8 million reais ($1.5 million) for environmental violations, though none were accused of having participated in the burning during the “day of fire.” These four cities, plus…This article was originally published on Mongabay Läs mer
